A.I.Schulze, marketers of Birkosit Dichtungskitt worldwide launched their India specific website
www.india.birkosit.com recently. The website has complete information on the product Birkosit at one
On 1 October 2009 the product development innovations for sealing compound
sealing compound BIRKOSIT - Dichtungskitt ® were approved. The new technical specification is as
follows: Temperature resistance up to 900 °C; Pressure resistance up to 250 bar. In close cooperation with
Siemens Power Generation, product developments have been geared to the future needs of the energy sector
and designed to meet the specifications for the next generation of SST steam turbines and SGT gas turbines.
Application/Costs/Summary at Siemens AG Power Generation Mülheim location
in steam and gas turbines Turbine output from 1 - 150MW
-> metal on metal
is to be sealed to the STEAM SPACE!
Individual areas of application:
-> Sealing surfaces (butt joints) in the pressure area turbine halves.
[consumption: on average 3 to 5 tins]
[Time required: usually approx. 40-60 minutes]
-> Sealing surfaces (butt joints) inside the pressure area turbine halves.

[consumption: on average 1 to 2 tins]
[Time required: usually approx. 20-30 minutes]
-> High-pressure stage of the turbines.
-> Medium-pressure stage of the turbines.
-> Low-pressure stage of the turbines.
BIRKOSIT - sealing compound ® has been used for 50 years on Siemens turbines. [product development
1952 with Siemens]
Without the additional sealing of individual pressure areas using BIRKOSIT - sealing compound ® the
production imprecisions or the distortion under loads are no longer evened out, which means that the
turbine areas in
the individual pressure areas become permeable under pressure. This means the turbine loses power, and
